Ed notes:
1. Toporama maps can be quirky: Mashibashi and Chicagonce Portages are marked on the lower-resolution topos but not on the higher-resolution ones.
2. Toporama names often differ from those in guides/reports:
dam at the end of White Lake;
Mashibashi Portage (a few km below the dam);
Chicagonce Portage (given also in Norm Head‘s report);
Angler Falls (between Chicagonce and Baptisimon, closer to the former).
